My original copy some forty years ago.

The anniversary edition – a treat for myself – possibly 30th anniversary, so around 1984 at a guess.

First read when I was around eleven or twelve years old, it took me months to get through this wonderful tome, but I have since read it on numerous occasions, finally parting with my copy last year when I made the very difficult decision to spend more time reading novels that were new to me rather than old favourites.

So many books, so little time!

This popped up in my memories today (from three years ago).  Little did I anticipate that reading this brilliant book would be the start of a new career?

A fantastic and complex storyline that keeps you turning the pages right through the night.
